Alexander Huth, Ph.D.

University of Texas at Austin

Alexander Huth, Ph.D., is currently a neuroscience postdoc in Dr. Jack Gallant's laboratory at UC Berkeley, where he does work in computational and experimental neuroscience using fMRI. His research is focused on how the many different areas in the human brain work together to perform complex tasks such as understanding natural language. He uses fMRI to measure brain responses while subjects do real-life tasks, such as listening to a narrative story, and then uses those data to build computational models of how the brain functions. Alex earned his PhD in Dr. Jack Gallant's laboratory in 2013 through the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute at UC Berkeley. Before that, Alex earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees in computation and neural systems (CNS) at Caltech, where he worked with Dr. Christof Koch and Dr. Melissa Saenz.
